Awful.

So , I guess that was Steve on the Avengers cover.

I'm just shocked they made the effort to maintain some consistency between titles.

One reason: Geoff Johns.

The man who has spent the last 4 years propping up Sinestro while turning Hal Jordan into a shallow "one note" character.

I watched it last night and it was absolutely fascinating. Despite the oddity, most of these people seemed to have really good hearts and admirable intentions. many of them focused less on scaling rooftops and throwing down with criminal, and more on community outreach to the poor and homeless. Good for them.

If I were a mutant the last thing I would think about is putting on a costume and fighting crime / robbing a bank.  I'd market my freakness for big $$$$$. Every kid around would have my lunchbox and Oprah would love me because I'm not afraid to cry.

Gotta give some love to Uncle Ben. He took on the responsibility of raising his brother's kid and did such a fantastic job that his one bit of random, seemingly impractical, advice has become the unforgiving mantra of his super hero nephew's life. Now that is some effective parenting.

If this movie bombs I hope it doesn't effect the Green Lantern Animated Series.

@G-Man

That's strange; with the addition of Hammond it looked like it was following "Secret Origins" with Parallax added instead of the Black Hand / Atrocitus stuff.

Basically G-Man's review confirmed all of the fears I've had since I read the 1st draft of this script circulating around the internet. They should have gone with a tweaked up script based upon the vastly superior "Emerald Dawn" then one based upon Johns' "Secret Origin". A movie based on Emerald Dawn would have keep GL in space on Oa where he belongs, but DC just can't quit Geoff Johns and had to get Parallax involved. I'm still seeing it but it sounds like a huge disappointment.
